FAQ - ArcFM - Can a Stored Display's BLOB be parsed?

Version 2

    Question

     

    Can the BLOB field, where a given Stored Display is saved, be parsed?

     

    Answer

     

    In short, no.  While it is true that there are third-party programs capable of parsing BLOBs, the only meaningful text one would be able to parse out of a BLOB are the layer names. Nothing else in there will be readable by humans.
